I totally agree that feet are extremely individual. People sometimes rave here about brands that I know would not work for me; even in the store I can tell they are not structured right for my feet.
They symptoms you describe sound like you might need shoes with thicker, more cushioned soles and/or good innersoles. Or perhaps you've had those shoes a long time and they're sort of broken down?
Prior to 2015 I used ordinary lace-up walking shoes made by companies like Rockport, which were generally pretty comfortable, but last year I was heading out on a summer-long trip and felt there was room for improvement. I went to a small, somewhat pricey shoe store and spent some time with the salesman. I explained that my arches seemed a bit higher than average and I would be walking on concrete up to 10-12 miles a day. (I average less.) He had me stand on an electronic mat that showed the touch-points on the bottom of my feet and came up with some suggestions. I'm sure a good athletic-shoe store could do the same.
Although I had hoped for better-looking shoes that didn't scream "athletic", comfort was more important than appearance to me, and I ended up with shoes that were clearly meant for walking rather than going out to lunch. The shoes felt distinctly bouncy, and I added some high-quality innersoles (called non-custom orthotics, I think) that provided additional arch support. It was not cheap--between $220 and $250 as I recall.
There may have been some luck involved, because it's hard to be sure until you've taken a 10-mile walk and used shoes for several days, but those shoes worked well over the course of two long trips (totaling 7-1/2 months). I suspect the cushioning may also help in avoiding lower-back pain, but that's just a guess; it's not a problem I usually have. I expect to buy new shoes before my next trip; I'll keep using the old ones at home for jaunts to the farmer's market, etc.
